Hi guys! I hope that you’re all having a beautiful weekend. ❤ Today, I have one of my usual beginning-of-the-month posts to share with you! This one will be slightly different than the ones I have done in the past, this time focusing more on what I mainly want to get done in the beautiful month of November. If you have written a post like this yourself recently, let me know in the comments below! I’d love to know what you’re up to this month. (: Without any further ado, let’s check this out!
Focuses for November
~ Practice the piano. I have been really into this recently, mastering scales and chords and becoming familiar with traditional Christmas songs (I can’t wait for December!). I’m also watching a 10-video series on YouTube called ‘How to Become a Pianist in Ten Lessons,’ and I really like how the guy who did the series teaches and explains concepts.
Main Things to Accomplish: Master the minor scales and chords, learn to play a few more Christmas songs, finish watching the 10-video series, print out helpful charts
~ Keep up with digital photos. I take and edit sooo many photos every week, and they quickly get backed up! While I enjoy going through them and organizing the folders, it’s tedious work. However, since I didn’t do anything with them in October, I’d like to catch up on that this month.
Main Things to Accomplish: Get pictures off phone, go through the photo folder that has all pics that need to be sorted, add to blog photo folders
~ Continue reading books that I own. I mentioned on a post back in October that I have multiple books on my bookshelf that I have yet to read or read a second time, and I really want to focus on reading those this month and into December, as well! They really are good books; libraries are just so distracting for me, haha.
Main Things to Accomplish: Read more Poirot short stories, decide on a few full-length books I want to read in November, donate any that I really don’t feel like reading anymore
~ Enjoy spending time with my family. We’ve really been enjoying playing games together, and I want to continue doing that throughout this month. ❤
Main Things to Accomplish: Play board/card games with Joshua and Samuel, find different fun activities to do with Samuel, continue having little photoshoot sessions
~ Work on my blogging schedule. This is a constant to-do and work-in-progress, haha, but it’s worth mentioning, anyway! For a while, I had certain types of posts I did on certain days of the week, but that has since faded away as I’ve started writing different kinds of posts. However, I’d love to see if I could develop a basic post schedule to stick to now (T.R. Noble has inspired me!). I already have some ideas, so we’ll see how that goes.
Main Things to Accomplish: Brainstorm posts for December, work on different inspirational pieces for November, get my blogging planner in order
~ Keep up with language-learning. I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I took a month-long break from learning Spanish in September because I truly needed it, and since then, I have been periodically keeping up with lessons and reviews. Right now, I’m deciding between which three languages I want to pursue, as you’ll see below. (:
Main Things to Accomplish: Master the basics of Brazilian Portuguese, catch up on Spanish review, learn the basics of French
Thank you so much for reading! I am so excited about what I’ll be focusing on this November – it’s going to be a great month. ❤ I hope that you guys have a beautiful November, as well! Have a great week!
How about you?
What are YOU focusing on this November?
